Fort Carson conducts annual training exercises to test installation’s emergency procedures

FORT CARSON, Colo. — Soldiers at Fort Carson were busy training on Wednesday just in case a disaster happens.

This year’s drill featured response to a pandemic scenario.

They established a point of dispensing — or pod — with medications for the Fort Carson community.

The purpose of the exercise is to evaluate the capability of emergency management systems in a highly stressful environment.

So if there was a real-world event, the post can work out any issues before an actual emergency.

These exercises are an annual requirement at Fort Carson to test the installation’s emergency procedures.
